As Lindenwold's new Chief of Police, I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to the community. I have been with the department for 20 years, serving most of that time in the patrol division. I'm very pleased to have the opportunity to command the men and women of our fine department.
Part of my philosophy is to be more in touch with the community. In this economy, when resources are dwindling, it is more important than ever for the police department to maintain a positive relationship with the community it serves. When the community and the police work together, Lindenwold can become a much safer place. Communication is the key to forging a positive, productive relationship between us, the police department and you the residents. In order to make it easier for the community to reach us, we have recently launched a Facebook page on which we can post information that the community should be aware of such as crime trends, crime prevention tips wanted persons, missing persons, etc.
We also are using crime mapping software to enable our officers to track where crimes are occurring and recognize patterns. This in turn will allow officers to be deployed to areas that may be experiencing a peak in criminal activity. Anonymous tips can be forwarded to the police department through this system as well. Please visit us at Facebook.com/LindenwoldPd. Instructions for using the anonymous tips system are posted there.
Thank you, and stay safe! Chief Thomas J. Brennan
